    Hudson's Tank (Australia)

    Just found this site on a Friday afternoon and thought that joining your community rather than actually working would be more enjoyable. I live in Melbourne, Australia and have been into marine aquariums on and off for the past 30 years. Married with 2 young kids I recently decided to set up a 4 foot mixed reef for my little boy (well at least thats what I told my wife). Hudson (3yo) is a little young to fully understand the complexities of a stable SW system but is learning fast and has a major say in what goes in and what comes out.

    I also have a 6ft system in the making which will be Ashleigh's tank (my 5yo). I'll post its specs at a later date.

    I look forward to learning how things are done over there and joining in your discussions. You may like to also check out the Australian equivalent to this site at http://www.masa.asn.au/masa/componen...page/Itemid,1/

    First off:



    Nice setup.

    The big difference here is we put water in the top of our tanks, but, you fellers have to set your tanks facing down. :speedbana

    I'm guessing at least some of you livestock has come from the GBR.

    So, what's under the hood? Sump, gear, etc.

    Tell Hudson he has done a really nice job on the tank. Everything looks very healthy and colourful. Nice job kiddo. :wink5:

    We used to have another Aussie on Aquaria. Her name was Fiffany, but it seems it's been a while since she posted.

    Welcome to the club Mate

    Welcome mate.........
    you got a beautiful tank downunder...
    One q question...........are some of the fish you got. or that nice critter........native of australia?
    meaning you guys got the barrier reef down there.........so I would assume it would be easier to find fish species at LFS .........
    Sorry for my ignorance.!!!!!!!!Just thought I ask.
